Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sean Casten (IL-06) released the following statement following the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Casten said, “After four years of corruption, cruelty, and deadly incompetence in the White House, today marks the beginning of a new day for America. With today’s swearing-in of President Biden and Vice President Harris, glass ceilings will be shattered, and a new era of truth-telling and integrity will begin. 

“As President Biden said today, ‘The American story depends not on any one of us, not on some of us, but on all of us.’ The progress we will make in the coming years will be possible because the overwhelming majority of Americans are good people who share in the commitment to democracy and equal justice for all. Today marks the beginning of brighter days, hard work, and good trouble.”
